Mosaic named to manage Texas' Rancho Viejo Resort & Country Club

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Mosaic Clubs & Resorts (www.mosaicclubs.com) has been retained to manage Rancho Viejo Resort & Country Club, a private, family-oriented resort community that stretches across 1,400 lush acres in the Rio Grande Valley at the southern tip of Texas.

Mosaic will manage both the club and resort elements at Rancho Viejo, including lodging, dining, two golf courses and a golf academy, conference center, swim and tennis, fitness center and club member activities.

"We're thrilled to be welcomed to Rancho Viejo, a resort destination of such renown, tropical beauty and enriched heritage," says Mosaic's chairman, Whitney Crouse. "We are fully committed to exceeding expectations for every resort guest and club member."

Rancho Viejo Resort and Country Club is located just outside Brownsville, Texas, at the southernmost point of the United States mainland. Offering an inviting year-round climate, it has been concluded that the Rio Grande Valley has 340 playable days of golf per year, more than anywhere else in the United States.

Opened in 1971, Rancho Viejo's two 18-hole golf courses, El Diablo and El Angel, are framed by resacas, the ancient waterways of the Rio Grande Delta. The championship courses have played host to several national-class competitions, including the PGA Tour Qualifying School, where elite golfers like Curtis Strange, Craig Stadler and Peter Jacobson vied to earn their Tour cards.

Also located on property are two excellent dining facilities and a conference center with plentiful meeting and special occasion event rooms. Rancho Viejo's award-winning swimming pool boasts a large waterfall and a sandy beach landing. Resort guests stay in 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom villas, offering the privacy of a conventional hotel room with all the amenities of a luxury home.

Rancho Viejo is just minutes from myriad cultural and recreational attractions, including the pristine beaches of South Padre Island, the Port Isabel Lighthouse, two National Wildlife Refuges popular with birders and the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art, currently displaying a King Tutankhamun Egyptian Treasures exhibit.
